Does The New Veronica’s Single Reveal Tumultuous Relationship With Billy Corgan?

Written by Mike Hohnen on July 30, 2012

The Veronicas have very recently released their latest single, Lolita. Five years in the making, the tune marks a drastic change in direction for the pop princesses, who appear to be a lot more content shedding their teeny innocence, replacing it with a much more adult perspective.

It would appear that the sweethearts of the Australian music scene have had enough of the image, choosing song as the perfect medium to take aim, and from many aspects, fire at all those who have done them wrong. This could be industry people who abused the twins trust, though given the proximity to the break-up of Jess Origliasso (one half of the creative duo) and Smashing Pumpkins’ frontman Billy Corgan, there’s much more of a chance that is what influenced the dance floor ode.

With lines such as ‘Doomed from the start, we can’t stay apart/Everywhere I turn I’m trapped in your heart’, it appears that The Veronicas are now willing to share all, exposing the unhealthy nature of Jess and Corgan’s relationship. The track can be found on their up-and-coming release Life on Mars, which will be the first time we’ve heard from the two in many years.

Of the song, Jess commented “Even in this day and age of Gaga, you still have people around wanting you to play it safe. That’s crazy to me”, according to News.com.au. She continued to explain how she thinks fans will receive the track, “The Veronicas hold a very specific space for people here in terms of pop music so I am sure this song will shock a lot of people,” she said.

Corgan himself was just in town, playing what was by all accounts a mind-blowing performance at this year’s Splendour in the Grass.

So it looks as though The Veronicas have returned, and plan on taking names and claiming scalps as they do so. Here’s the tune below.
